    This intensive two-day review course will prepare participants to be successful in the writing of the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Examination from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program (AANPCP). The course has been developed by experienced Adult Nurse Practitioners in Ontario. This highly successful course addresses effective exam preparation strategies; as well as a focused review of key areas covered in the AANPCP exam including health promotion, health history and assessment, clinical management, pharmacologic therapy, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and professional practice issues. A special focus on relevant information on the care of the elderly and frail elderly will be addressed throughout the course. Content is geared to preparing you to be confident and successful in writing the exam.
